Most newcomers to the Microsoft Azure public cloud face their biggest learning curve with software-defined networking. This course, Implementing Microsoft Azure Networking, teaches you all about the building blocks of Azure virtual networks, including planning, deployment, configuration, monitoring, and security. You will learn how to design virtual networks that support your workloads with the highest security and performance. You'll also learn how to configure hybrid connectivity between your on-premises environment and Azure. Additionally, you will learn how to closely monitor your network performance to keep in compliance with your service-level agreements (SLAs). By the end of this course, you will be able to design and deploy Azure infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) networking with confidence and accuracy.
Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Tim Warner, and welcome to my course Implementing Microsoft Azure Networking. I'm a Microsoft MVP in Cloud and Datacenter management, as well as a Pluralsight staff author. Azure software define networking normally represents the Cloud architects and IT ops professionals' first significant learning curve. By the end of the course, you'll be able to design, deploy, configure, secure, and monitor Azure virtual networks and other network related resources with confidence and accuracy. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Cloud networking with the Implementing Microsoft Azure Networking course at Pluralsight.
Azure Virtual Networks Hi there, welcome to Pluralsight. This is Tim, welcoming you to the module entitled Azure Virtual Networks. What are you going to learn over the course of this second module in our trolley ride through Azure networking. I have three way points on our journey today. First is understanding virtual network capabilities. If you came out of the previous module you may feel a little bit of an overwhelm factor. We're going to take a step back and look at the virtual network in relative isolation. We'll also cover the basics of IP addressing in Azure both IPv4 and IPv6 as well as covering name resolution. Let's have some fun and let's learn.
Network Security Groups Hello there and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner and this module is entitled Network Security Groups. I have three learning goals for you in this module, and they're all related to information security in the Azure cloud. We need to understand exactly what NSGs are and how you implement them in an Azure IS scenario. We'll also cover Multi-NIC virtual machines, which do have a place in certain scenarios. And we'll also cover to a degree customer VNET routing. Let's get started.
Azure Load Balancers Hello there, and welcome to Pluralsight. Tim Warner here welcoming you to the module entitled Azure Load Balancers. And normally you have about three learning objectives for each of my modules. This one is no different. My main learning goal for you is to understand what Azure Load Balancer options exist. If you've never used load balancers, I want to make sure you understand their use case. And I also want to make sure you know how to configure both external or Internet-facing load balancers as well as ones internal to the virtual network. We'll also look at another offering called Application Gateway and you add a third Azure offering called Traffic Manager. The bottom line is that you're going to leave this module with a wide spectrum understanding of the hows and whys of Azure Load Balancing. Let's get right to work.
Network Virtual Appliances Hello there, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner, and this module is entitled Network Virtual Appliances. The purpose of this module, the main learning take-away's going to be for you to not only understand the use cases for Azure network virtual appliances, but also understand what goes into planning and deploying these things. In so doing, and through a practical demonstration, we'll look at licensing, runtime costs, placement of a virtual appliance in an Azure virtual network, and basic configuration. Let's get started.
Hybrid Cloud Networking Hey there, what's up? Welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner and this module is entitled Hybrid Cloud Networking. We're going to begin this module by looking at a typical Hybrid Cloud scenario, specifically the one that I'm going to build, or we're going to build together, over the course of this module. In understanding the Hybrid Cloud scenario in Azure, we need to understand the different Azure VPN types, including the technique of forced tunneling and then we'll finish with a consideration of ExpressRoute, really, Azure VPN and ExpressRoute are the two primary methods for building a Hybrid Cloud. Let's get started.
Monitoring and Securing Azure Virtual Networks Hello, there, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner. And this module is entitled "Monitoring and Securing Azure Virtual Networks. " This is the final module in our networking course, and we've got quite a bit of ground to cover, actually. We'll begin by examining monitoring virtual networks, strategies for that, including Azure Monitor, Log Analytics, Network Performance Monitor, and open-source tools. After that, we'll turn our attention to securing virtual networks, examining some of Microsoft's given best practices in this domain, as well as looking at a fantastic tool called Azure Security Center. Let's get started.
